2022 was Amazing, Can't wait for 2023!!!

 Wow, this has been an absolutely amazing year in quilting!!!   I just love being able to see everything I have created in a year all summed up in one post.   And it makes me so excited for 2023 as I already have lots and lots planned :)  So let's take a look at 2022 in the Numbers!!

68 Quilts 
 (although, around 18 were just quilted this year as the tops were done in previous years, 
 so I am not totally crazy right  :)

3 Projects

This one has a Free PDF as well!!!                                                                                                               

6 New Free PDF Patterns

Sugar Pop N Change                                           Stepping Out

Playing the Scales                                  Steps to Tranquility 

Flying in Squares                                        Stitch To My Lou

3 New Happy Quilting Patterns

1 Amazing Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book Tour

 and 1 Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Sampler 
Quilt Along Planned for 2023

And that's Happy Quilting 2022 in a nutshell!!!! Wow, what an incredible year!!!   I also got to teach at 11 different Quilting Retreats and I enjoyed getting to come and share my love of quilting with so many fellow Happy Quilters.  I also realized while preparing this post, I need to post about some of that teaching!!!  I will admit, I got a little behind towards the end of the year with the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book tour ;)   But that just means I have lots to share already in January of 2023   You can see more details about all of the quilts in my Archive Cont. Tab at the top of the page including links to the quilts with tutorials and Pattern PDF Downloads.  (And wow, I have spent the last 6 hours updating that tab, here is to not getting behind in 2023 :)  

And I just want to say Thank You So Very Much!!!   I can't even believe that I get to be a part of such an amazing industry and that I literally just stumbled into it over 10 years ago.  I have shared a lot of trunk shows this year, and each time I share my "how I started out" video, I can't help but just smile at how far Happy Quilting has come.   What a journey and what an absolute joy to be on this journey. I am so blessed to have each of you and can't thank you enough for always reaching out to me.   It means so very much and makes me want to keep Happy Quilting every day :)

And now, It's time to look forward to 2023!!!

So what does 2023 hold in store . . . well, like always, lot's more Happy Quilting, of course :)     I am super excited to g :)  Books are always such a huge process and it is so great to fiet going on the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Sampler Quilt along which I think will be starting in Feb or March.  (Martingale is closing their doors, so things are a little up in the air right now with printing books, but I am working on it ;)     I have 3 New Patterns all in different stages of completion that I am currently working on and hope to release soon.  I also have more Free PDF Patterns and  Happy Quilting Tutorials planned for 2023.  And I will be teaching at lots of fun places, including on a Quilting Cruise to Alaska.  So ya, it should be a pretty fun year!!!   

And again, one last time . . . Thank you!!!!

So let's wave goodbye to 2022 and bring on 2023!!!!!  Happy Quilting!!!
